For the foreseeable future, most data will continue to be stored in relational databases. To work with these data in ontology-based applications, tools and techniques that bridge the two models are required. Mapping all relational data to ontology instances is often not practical so dynamic data access approaches are typically employed, though these approaches can still suffer from scalability problems. The use of rules with these systems presents an opportunity to employ optimization… CONTINUE READING
